12 of my last 24 wus don't produce hitsfiles.
Stderr: Guest Log: "exeErrorDiag": "Non-zero return code from EVNTtoHITS (33); Logfile error in log.EVNTtoHITS: \"IOVDbSvc FATAL Conditions database connection COOLOFL_TRT/OFLP200 cannot be opened - STOP\"",

This is a extract of a comment from David Cameron,
why you get credit without a hits-file.

.....
What the ATLAS WU do is simulate how those particles in each event interact with the detector, which consists of many extremely complex components. The description of the detector is partly in ATLAS simulation software but partly in remote database services from which data is read over the network at the start of each WU. The output of the simulation is in the hits file, which is a description of where each particle "hits" (i.e interacts with) the detector.

Therefore a truly successful WU must have a valid hits file produced, however you can still get credit even if no hits file is present because we don't want people to suffer from problems in ATLAS software or infrastructure.

Credit is not the problem, But I think there is another problem.
Since 11 march afternoon 28 of my last 56 wus don't produce hitsfiles and
EACH wu starting first during the upload of the result of the wu before is terminated in 20 ... 30 minutes with no hitfile as discribed below.
How do you organize, that I get every second task without a collision, although you do not know wich task I run next?

There is something wrong,
had you checked with Yeti's Checklist?

You may gracefully shutdown BOINC and reboot your computer.

This snippets are from one of successful tasks:
2020-03-16 04:20:24 (10804): Setting CPU throttle for VM. (75%)
.
.
.
2020-03-16 06:59:10 (10804): Setting CPU throttle for VM. (100%)
.
.
.
2020-03-16 07:23:29 (10804): VM state change detected. (old = 'Running', new = 'Paused')
2020-03-16 07:23:39 (10804): VM state change detected. (old = 'Paused', new = 'Running')
2020-03-16 07:26:59 (10804): VM state change detected. (old = 'Running', new = 'Paused')
2020-03-16 07:27:09 (10804): VM state change detected. (old = 'Paused', new = 'Running')
2020-03-16 07:35:30 (10804): VM state change detected. (old = 'Running', new = 'Paused')
2020-03-16 07:35:40 (10804): VM state change detected. (old = 'Paused', new = 'Running')

A CPU throttle of 75% seems to be too low.
Permanently switching between running and pausing may cause problems.

Did you recently do updates?
Windows, VirtualBox ...
In case of VirtualBox you may try if a less recent version solves the problem.

win10 update KB4551762 was implementet 11 march noon with gracefully shutdown BOINC and reboot .
I checked with Yeti's Checklist 13 Mar 2020 noon, although every second task run with no problem.
In about 2 hours, when the actual running task is finished I will reboot.
My computer is in use and not only for LHC@home tasks. The problem exists at a CPU throttle of 60 ... 100%.
My experience of past period is a CPU throttle of 60% is too low.
Switching between running and pausing is caused by my tasks and didn't cause problems in the past period.
